I passed a home the other day
The yard was filled with kids at play
And on the sidewalk of this home
A little boy stood all alone

His smiling face was sweet and kind
But I could see the boy was blind
He listened to the children play
I bowed my head and there I prayed

Dear Lord above, why must this be
And then these words came down to me
After all, you're just a man
And it's not for you to understand

It's not for you to reason why
You too are blind without my eyes
So question not what I command
'Cause it's not for you to understand

Now when I pray my prayer is one
I pray his will, not mine be done
After all, I'm just a man
And it's not for me to understand
